About this title


From the author of the award-winning juvenile historical fiction novel, SEAMAN: The Dog Who Explored the West With Lewis and Clark, comes an exciting new novel based on the founding of the first permanent English settlement in the New World. In 1606, King James I granted a charter to a group of London businessmen known as the Virginia Company to establish an English settlement in North America. In 1607, 104 men set sail aboard three tiny ships on a voyage to a new land. What they found became the first permanent English settlement in the New World—Jamestown. Among the brave adventurers who made the journey was a young boy named Samuel Collier, the page of famed Captain John Smith. Samuel accompanied Smith on the legendary journey to meet the Algonquin leader Powhatan. Disease, famine, and continuing attacks by neighboring Algonquin Indians took a tremendous toll on the settlers. Samuel was one of the few to survive the harsh realities of the New World during the first few years of Jamestown. Based on author Gail Karwoski’s careful research of the era, this fictional account portrays the struggles and successes of our country’s earliest settlers, as seen through the life of a young man. Young readers will enjoy this story of courage and survival while learning about this important period in the history of the United States.

From the Back Cover:

The disarmingly simple text goes straight to the heart of what love really is. Through thoughtful and fanciful questions, Ashford explains what we risk when we ask for love and what special rewards may be waiting for us in return.
